Sky Rip Off

Getting access to Sky Sports on broadband costs £35 a month.

And in return Sky use P2P technology to save costs.
However, even at this hefty subscription, you are very unlikely to see the events that you have paid for even at half decent quality. In fact, much of the them they will simply not be available even at the lowest quality.
I have failed on both a 4Mbps connection and on a very reliable 20Mbps connection after using this service for several months.

Can all readers of this blog please re-post this and pass it on.
